Maritime Law and Services

Ship Registry and Finance

A law enacted in 1925 gave way to the development of a Panamanian Merchant Marine fleet by removing ownership. Its benefits has made Panama one of the leading open registry country with a significant portion of the world’s gross tonnage registered under its flag.

The Republic of Panama currently has the first largest Merchant Marine fleet in the world. The Panamanian registry has achieved a steady increase in tonnage from 1979, when Panama had the seventh largest fleet in the world with 9,308 vessels representing 24.4 million gross registered tons until December 2004, when our Register had 10,470 vessels representing 153, 654, 434 gross registered tons.

Panama's pre-eminent position in the global shipping industry means that most leading maritime companies have strong legal connections in Panama.

Patton Moreno & Asvat maintains an excellent relationship with the two government bodies involved in the registry of ships and maritime mortgages, the General Directorate of Merchant Marine (DIGEMAR) and the Public Registry Office.

In addition, we are in constant communication with Panamanian consulates and maritime offices worldwide to ensure speedy processing, registration and enrollment.

  • Advice in the selling and purchase of ships.
  • Ship financing.
  • Composition and registration of ship mortgages.
  • Ship registration in the Republic of Panama, Belize, The Bahamas, and in the British Virgin Islands.
